Bill and Erin are amazing! They were always very responsive to my wants, needs and multitude of questions. The engagement session was amazing, we went to our favorite places and hung out just like we were on a double date. This helped both my husband and I (who are NOT picture people) relax and enjoy the photo session. They take wonderful pictures and are great at getting that candid shot you'll cherish forever, when you didn't even know they where there. They were the perfect addition to our wedding and you will be so glad you invited them to be a part of yours as well.Sent on 11/27/2012

Bill & Erin are amazing to work with! From the planning process through the big day, they were so kind & helpful. During the wedding they weren't obtrusive at all - don't you hate going to weddings where the photographers are constantly in the way? They kept to the timeline & got all of the formal family/wedding party shots done with time to spare. Have I mentioned how talented they are? We took pictures in an average looking parking lot & they turned out amazing!Sent on 08/11/2012
They plugged in an SD card of our engagement shots into the digital frame our venue has. They even setup their laptop with a slideshow of a few of the pictures they took earlier in the day. How cool is that!?
We are so excited to see the pictures of our wedding because we know they will be amazing!

A few years ago my daughters were looking through my niece's engagement photos done by Bill and Erin/Mode Wedding Photography, ended up looking through their website and falling in love with the artistry and uniqueness of the pictures. Both decided to get married this summer, and both considered no one but Mode.Sent on 07/23/2011
I'm only going to write this on behalf of the younger daughter, because the other prefers to write her own review. The younger daughter and her fiance were not as comfortable with pictures of themselves as the elder pair. They had a great time with Bill and Erin, though, and enjoyed their personable approach to the session. The couple still had little confidence in their own photogenic qualities and were uncertain if even Bill and Erin could get great pics of them. They were so happy to discover their doubts were unfounded! They had such giddy and pleased looks on their faces when they sat in Bill's and Erin's living room, having their viewing session, and loving each and every picture. The love and joy they feel for each other really showed through the photos, and they were all so natural.
The kids were thrilled to show the online slideshow Erin designed for them to family and friends. Bill and Erin provided a computer file of the pics to show on a big screen slide show and ordered prints with very short notice to use in frames, both for use at the reception.
For the big day, Bill and Erin were there from the moment we started wedding prep. They asked what we had in mind for photos and made suggestions for things we wouldn't have thought of. They fit into the activities without drawing attention to themselves or interfering with normal movements...In other words we could just continue with dressing, makeup, chatter between us, etc. without feeling odd or like someone was in the way, but they're still right there with the right angle to capture the emotions and little looks.
Their expertise with wedding events gave us a feeling of confidence as they helped keep things going, offering reminders, support, and encouragement, as necessary. They were always pleasant and smiling. They add a calm to the day, never making the bride or others feel rushed or pushed, but being sure to keep things on schedule. They even helped manage a guest, who thought she should be more involved in the more private parts of the wedding than we wanted, but did it in a way that we weren't troubled and the guest was never offended.
The photo book (another thing specially designed by Erin) used in lieu of a guest book is a great idea. It allows people to write message and good wishes, not just their name and address.
It amazes me how much time Bill and Erin spend with clients, putting them at ease and getting to know them, so the pictures reflect special moments and priorities. Like their website says, being best friends in love, they understand best friends in love, and it comes through in the way they treat the couples and the way the photos turn out.
